Question about 2003 Yamaha XJR 1300
1. Check the battery and make sure it is fully charged.
2. Check to make sure battery leads are cleaned and secure.
3. Check the connections to the Starter. Again cleaned and secure.
4. Make sure the starter button is functioning correctly and clean.
5. You may have to take the starter off and have it checked.
Reason: sometimes the starter can have a winding go bad.
If the battery and connections are clean good and tight.
Then brushes or a winding could be damaged/worn.
This can cause the starter to turn slowly.
TYPICALLY it is just the battery with a dead or dying cell.
After the bike warms up it is easier to start. Oil is warm and thinner.
Less friction, easier turning etc etc.
Hope this helps!

Check battery voltage....a good battery will read between 12.6v and 13v. how old is battery? if more than three years old and you're a seasonal rider the battery is probably suspect! Also if you live in a very cold climate and use a thicker oil.... it might also cause this.
